The purpose of an Emergency Activation Plan is to protect
the employees from serious injury, property loss, or loss of life, in the event
of an actual or potential major disaster. A major disaster may include,
but not limited to, any of the following: fire, tornado, earthquake, bomb threat,
or hazardous chemical spill. In the event of a major disaster, this Emergency Activation
Plan describes the initial responsibilities and actions to be taken to protect all
employees until the appropriate university or municipal responders take over.
It is of the utmost importance that the employer review with each employee upon
their initial assignment or when the plan changes, those parts of the plan that
the employee must know to protect her/himself in the event of an emergency. In addition,
the written plan shall be made available for employees to review and plan for their
NEPTA’s Emergency Activation Plan is one most of the detailed and comprehensive
plans available to date. This plan is applicable to practically all businesses,
municipalities, and other entities. NEPTA will customize any plan to fit the needs
of an organization if necessary. With this type of plan, we often meet with an organization
to assist in the completion of it, but it is not necessary as directions are included
with the plan.
Simply select the desired plan, follow the simple downloading steps, and your municipality/organization
will have a comprehensive EAP once all sections are completed.
Every Business, Municipality, Organization, and Operation
should be required to have an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) which describes how
a facility will respond to and recover from all hazards; unfortunately this is not
the case. An EOP is inclusive of the six critical elements within the Joint
Commission’s Emergency Management Standards:
The “all hazards” approach allows ability to respond to a range of emergencies varying
in scale, duration, and cause. The EOP addresses response procedures, capabilities
and procedures when a facility, Municipality, Business, or any organization cannot
be supported by the community, recovery strategies, initiating and terminating response
and recovery phases, activating authority and identifies alternate sites for operations.
The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) provides the structure and processes that the
organization utilizes to respond to and initially recover from an event. The EOP
is therefore the response and recovery component of the organization.
To your benefit NEPTA has developed the one of the most comprehensive and exhaustive
Emergency Operation Plan’s available. Typically we are contacted to assist in developing
these plans on site, however we offer the choice to simply select the desired plan,
follow the simple downloading steps, and your organization will have a comprehensive
EOPonce all sections are completed or simply contact us at email@example.com and we will be more than
happy to schedule an appointment anywhere in the U.S./Canada/Puerto Rico/Dominican
A continuity of operations plan, or COOP, outlines steps
that an agency will take in the event a disaster interrupts business. Continuity
plans require agencies to designate functions as essential or nonessential. Essential
functions are those jobs that personnel must perform regardless of circumstances.
Examples of essential functions are health care, law enforcement, border patrol,
communications and environmental containment. The government also must ensure that
resources or personnel associated with a critical function are geographically disbursed
and not concentrated in one area, which raises the risk that those employees could
not perform their duties if a disaster strikes.
President Bush issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20 in May 2007, which
mandates agencies to develop continuity plans to ensure that mission-critical functions
continue during emergencies -- including technological emergencies. HSPD-20 is more
explicit than previous directives and the White House issued it in response to the
political fallout from its poor management in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The directive called for increased interagency cooperation, with FEMA remaining
in charge of coordinating emergency activities under the National Response Framework.
The framework tasks agencies with disaster response functions, and they are responsible
to FEMA for performing them.
Agencies also are responsible for developing contingency plans that outline how
they would continue operating if any kind of emergency occurred, including a loss
of electricity to a large-scale disaster. Part of agencies' plans must include having
access to alternate facilities and making sure critical personnel are not concentrated
in one location. In addition, they must safeguard and duplicate all critical technological
resources and databases. FEMA and GAO advocate testing continuity plans.
You don’t want to trust the development of a COOP plan to just anyone. NEPTA’s COOP
plans are comprehensive and exhaustive and you will find that we touch on all areas
of essential functions. NEPTA is often requested to assist in the development of
an organizations COOP and therefore, NEPTA will customize any plan upon request
Or Simply follow the steps to download NEPTA’s COOP, so that your municipality or
organization will have a comprehensive COOP they can be proud of once all sections
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning.
By definition, emergencies happen when we don't expect them, and often when families
are not together. Suddenly, you need to think about your kids at school or elderly
parents across town. If phones don’t work, or some neighborhoods aren’t accessible,
what will you do?
A Disaster can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home.
What would you do if basic services, such as water, gas, electricity, or telephones
were cut off? Local officials and relief workers could be or will be on the scene
after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.
To your benefit NEPTA has developed the most comprehensive and exhaustive Emergency
Continuity Family Plan available to date to include 25 pages of items that are necessary,
but typically left out of most plans. Simply select the desired plan, follow the
simple downloading steps, and your family will have a comprehensive ECFP once all
sections are completed.
During an Emergency your church will want to have plans
in place to ensure that operations continue smoothly and are not a source of stress
While churches and congregations are not businesses, they do provide critical services
and sanctuary, employ staff, purchase and maintain equipment and supplies, require
reliable building heating/ventilating/air conditioning, require income streams,
payment of expenses and banking services, information technology and communication
systems. All or some of these services and systems are easily disrupted during a
disaster or other emergency directly affecting your church or your community or
even your province. New church building plans, including building systems, equipment
and furnishings, should take these service continuity factors into account, e.g.
showers for men and women, ability to easily connect portable generators to electrical
system if prolonged power outage, mass public feeding, etc.
NEPTA’s Continuity of Ministry Plan assists in ensuring critical congregational
services and activities can continue during a disaster and that there is a plan
to resume normal functioning after the disaster. It will help keep your congregation
viable during and after a disruptive event. Critical services or products are those
that must be delivered to ensure survival, avoid causing injury, and meet legal
or other obligations of an organization. Business Continuity Planning is a proactive
planning process that ensures critical services or products are delivered during
a disruption, and normal services or products are resumed as effectively as possible
after the disruption.
NEPTA will customize any plan upon request. however, we have developed these plans
to fit almost all Churches and Ministries in the U.S. Simply select the desired
plan, follow the simple downloading steps, and your Church/organization will have
a comprehensive COMP once all sections are completed.
Continuity planning is a good business practice for any business, but critical for
Hospitals. It ensures the organization’s critical business and support functions
are executed in all circumstances and it is a fundamental responsibility of public
and private sector organizations to their stakeholders. As we have become increasingly
aware of in the past decade a variety of emergencies can happen; some with little
to no warning. These emergencies can be small to large spanning from natural disasters,
accidents, and military or terrorist threats and attacks to power outages, hardware
failures or data center incidents. 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina have opened our eyes
to the need of having robust continuity capabilities and planning that helps organizations
continue their essential functions through all emergencies.
Hospitals and other medical facilities are no more immune from disasters than government
entities are. This Continuity / Response Plan will help hospitals and other medical
facilities with continuity planning for their critical business functions and ensure
their daily operations continue seamlessly or at a minimum are back up and running
in an expedient manner. The vital elements covered in this comprehensive plan include:
We have designed this plan so that it can be easily downloaded, delegated, completed,
